The top-ranked senior and valedictorian for the Class of 2019 is Catherine Manning. The second-ranked student and salutatorian is Benjamin Marsan. Other students ranked among the top 10 are (in order): Ryan Nowicki, Varun Verma, Kyndall Womack, Katherine Bender, Ethan French, Aubrie Caldwell, Reid Lohman, and Samuel White. Lohman also was National Merit finalist.
All 10 students carried an overall weighted grade point average of 109 or higher.
"Dripping Springs High School offers its students rigorous and authentic learning opportunities, and is a highly competitive academic environment,” said Mr. Burns. While it is evident that these students have consistently focused on their performance in the classroom, they also have been involved in many areas of campus life ... from athletics to fine arts to outstanding community service. I have no doubt these well-rounded individuals will be successful in the next step of their lives."
The students will be honored during Senior Awards Night May 22 and at the Dripping Springs High School Graduation May 31.
